As the unrest and police brutality in Turkey continues, I thought it fitting to shed a little light on the country’s burgeoning underground/alternative music scene. Over the past month or so I have been immersing myself in as much Turkish music as I could find, from the brilliant out there psychedelic / funk from the 60s & 70s to the modern Turkish underground electronic scene. At the centre of the modern inversions of Turkish urban music is Tektosag Records and their sub-label, launched last year, Davulun Sesi.(link below)
